Week 2 of the 2022 Fan Controlled Football league took center stage Saturday, and it featured two matchups between undefeated teams.

The first of those matchups pitted 1-0 Bored Ape Football Club against 1-0 8oki Football Club in a game that saw Bored Apes prevail by a 32-14 score.

Fans also eagerly anticipated the FCF debut of quarterback Johnny Manziel and wide receiver Terrell Owens as teammates for Zappers against the Glacier Boyz.

While T.O. played for Zappers last week and scored a touchdown, the Pro Football Hall of Famer didn't yet have Johnny Football throwing him passes until this week.

Here is a full rundown of Saturday's Week 2 FCF results, along with analysis regarding each of the four games on the schedule.

FCF Week 2 Scores/Schedule

Bored Ape Football Club def. 8oki Football Club, 32-14

Knights of Degen def. Kingpins, 28-8

Glacier Boyz def. Zappers, 44-6

Shoulda Been Stars def. Beasts, 24-6

FCF Week 2 Recap

Shoulda Been Stars 24, Beasts 6

Thanks to an outstanding performance by LaDarius Galloway, Shoulda Been Stars had no problem beating Beasts 24-6 to run their record to 2-0 in the early going this season.

Galloway had one of the best touchdown passes you will ever see from a running back. He was nearly parallel to the ground when he released the ball and it fell into the waiting arms of Travalle Calvin.

The game was tied 6-6 late in the first half until Galloway nearly broke a defender's ankles with a cutback to find the end zone and put SB Stars up by six.

Beasts lone score of the game came early in the first half thanks to Quinn Porter. The former St. Louis Rams running back took a toss, cutback to the other side of the field and ran into the end zone from five yards out.

Galloway scored the first touchdown of the game with another terrific play. The Tennessee-Martin alum hurdled a defender to get into the end zone to give SB Stars a 6-0 lead.

SB Stars and Bored Ape FC are the only remaining unbeaten teams in the league after two weeks.

Glacier Boyz 44, Zappers 6

The Zappers team led by Johnny Manziel and Terrell Owens had another rough outing, as they were blown out 44-6 by the Glacier Boyz.

Zappers' first play from scrimmage was an omen of things to come. Quarterback Brian Allen scrambled for a gain of about 10 yards, but he lost the ball on his way to the ground and turned it over.

Glacier Boyz took a 22-6 lead into halftime thanks to Devlin Isadore's dime to Vance Leonard in the corner of the end zone.

The Zappers were almost able to get six points thanks to the Manziel-Owens connection. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner spun away from the Glacier Boyz defense and threw across his body to a wide-open Owens, who was stopped just short of the end zone.

Early in the game, Manziel did score a touchdown on a designed run.

This marks the second consecutive loss for the Zappers. Shoulda Been Stars beat them 20-12 last week in the season opener.

Glacier Boyz rebounded from last week's 36-20 loss to Beasts and earn their first victory of the season. They will take on Shoulda Been Stars next week.

Zappers will go head-to-head with Beasts in Week 3.

Bored Ape Football Club 32, 8oki Football Club 14

Led by former Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois, Bored Ape Football Club became the first 2-0 team in FCF this season by defeating 8oki Football Club 32-14.

Before Bored Apes pulled away in the second half, Francois and 8oki quarterback Mitch Kidd were going shot for shot in the opening half.

Kidd opened the scoring with a quarterback sweep to the right side, but Francois answered with the nearly the same play shortly thereafter:

Then, on the ensuing drive, Kidd showed off his improvisational skills by evading pass-rushers for a big gain down the field and then doing the same on a touchdown pass to former University of Hawai'i wide receiver Cedric Byrd:

Francois tightened things up near the end of the first half, though, with a bullet of a pace to former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams for a touchdown, which cut the deficit to two points:

Williams was perhaps the most accomplished player in the game, as he was a third-round pick by the Cowboys in the 2013 NFL draft out of Baylor.

He played for Dallas from 2013 to 2018 and had a career-best season in 2015 with 52 receptions for 840 yards and three touchdowns.

Francois, who had 44 total touchdowns in three seasons at FSU, put Bored Apes in control early in the second half with a short pass to wide receiver Maurice Thomas, which was taken the distance for a touchdown:

Bored Apes poured it on from that point forward and essentially put the game away with just over two minutes left thanks to a defensive touchdown.

An errant snap shot all the way down the field and was recovered by defensive back Styvis Latham for what amounted to a game-ending score:

With that, Bored Ape FC essentially established itself as the team to beat during the early going of the FCF season.

Knights of Degen 28, Kingpins 8

Another spectacular quarterback performance ruled the day in the second FCF game of Week 2 with Knights of Degen signal-caller Ed Crouch making plays both through the air and on the ground.

Crouch needed less than three minutes of game time to put the Knights ahead thanks to a quarterback run to the right for a touchdown:

While Crouch has done no shortage of damage with his legs through two weeks of the FCF campaign, he showcased the ability to make the opposition pay with his arm as well.

With the Knights up 6-0, Crouch extended the lead on a 30-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Yedidiah Lewis:

A second touchdown run by Crouch in the second essentially made the Knights' lead insurmountable, this time scoring on a quarterback draw:

The Knights of Degen's defense made a major impact in the game also with defensive lineman Nate Bresson picking up a fumble on the first play of the second half and walking into the end zone:

With the Knights leading 28-0 and trending toward the first shutout of the FCF season, the Kingpins managed to at least make it look more respectable late in the second half.

With less than five minutes remaining, the Kingpins finally got on the board thanks to a long touchdown pass from Tirri Jones to Eterrious Giles:

That score was merely cosmetic, though, as the Knights still managed to close out a lopsided 28-8 triumph.

The Knights of Degen bounced back from a narrow four-point loss last week to improve their record to 1-1, while the Kingpins became the first 0-2 team this season.
